Iceland has called on Sukhoi, the EASA, and the Interstate Aviation Committee to redesign the escape slides on the SuperJet as a result of this
accident. The crew failed to arm them before takeoff, but once they were deployed, the forward right slide twisted and blew under the nose of the
aircraft. There were 18-21 knot crosswinds that day. Under EASA certification rules, the slides are required to be able to handle up to 25 knots,
"at the most critical angle" without problems.
